SRV record "(out of zone) is a CNAME (illegal)"

Hi All: I'm trying to set up a SRV record for a zone, and when I run checkzone I
see the following error:

[root at default root]# named-checkzone -w /var/named TTL set to prior TTL (3600)
'' (out of zone) is a CNAME (illegal)

My SRV record is:

_sip._tls       SRV 100 1 443

Is there something wrong with my SRV record, or is this just a warning about
pointing to a different domain?
